Hello! Even though we're into the evening hours here on Peek-A-Boo Street, we are not cooling down at all. If anything, it's getting warmer. My air conditioner doesn't even feel like it's working. We have our service set up where the billing company interrupts our air at intervals on really hot days like this. It's suppose to save money but it's making the house heat up so much. It's also suppose to prevent black outs when everyone has their air cranked up at the same time.
Anyway, I've seen some bloggers with little lamps on their kitchen counters and I just liked that idea. It adds that extra warmth to their kitchen. So I have been keeping an eye out for one at the thrift stores. I wanted one with a colored lamp shade to add some color to my kitchen. I finally came across something I liked but it did not have any color. The shade and the base is made of glass. But when I seen this pretty little thing for $7.99, color didn't seem to matter all that much any more. This one will do until I can find another one with a splash of color.
But doesn't is look nice? It does give the kitchen a little glow of warmth. It will be nice during the fall and the winter holidays and not so much on hot July nights!
I'm going to try and find a new finial for it though. I got the cord hiding behind the coffee pot.
This basket holding two of my hen in a nest dishes were all thrift finds. See the green one up on top? That's why I'm linking this post up to Fiona's @ Raindrops and Daisies for Green Day #3. This will be my second time joining so I hope I do it correctly.
Now with all of this warmth and aglow talk, I'm outta here. It's getting hot in here and I need to go jump into the pool. Like now.
I'm signing off.........from Peek-A-Boo Street.
